A lady knows how to fight when she's painted into a corner.

Lady Emily Southwell and her three friends, Priscilla Tate and Daphne and Ariadne Courdebas, are determined that someday the world will speak in reverent tones of the year they made their debuts in London Society. She is equally determined to take her rightful place among the famous artists of the Royal Society for the Beaux Arts. That is, until her longtime betrothed Lord Robert Townsend declares his intent to marry her and whisk her off into the countryside, immediately. What can the fellow be thinking! It's up to Lady Emily and her friends to discover whether Lord Robert has something up his sleeve besides a nicely muscled arm.

Dashing Bow Street Runner Jamie Cropper is determined to uncover Lord Robert's secrets, but he finds himself continually tripping over the determined Lady Emily. What is it about those dark curls, that fiery spirit? A shame she is miles above him in Society's eyes. And in danger of becoming Lord Robert's next victim.

As Jamie and Lady Emily join forces to prove Lord Robert a villain, will a duke's daughter form a perilous passion for a most unlikely suitor?

If you enjoy warm, witty Regency romance with a touch of mystery, you'll love this novel from an award-winning author.

About the Author

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn't actually sell her first Regency romance novel until she had learned a bit more about writing such as vocabulary, sentence structure, and plot. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, she got serious about her novel writing. The Regency romance The Unflappable Miss Fairchild was her first novel to be published (March 1998). In 2011, she was delighted to move into Christian romance with the publication of The Irresistible Earl.

Besides her novels, Regina Scott has had published three Regency romance novellas ("The June Bride Conspiracy" in His Blushing Bride, "Sweeter Than Candy" in A Match for Mother, and "A Place by the Fire" in Mistletoe Kittens), which are now featured in electronic book form as Be My Bride. Her novels have been translated into Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese; and Lord Borin's Secret Love and The Rake's Redemption have been issued in hardcover, large print editions. Many of her works are also available as electronic books through Belgrave House's Regency Reads line or as self-published works, such as Perfection.

Regina Scott and her husband of more than 30 years reside in Puget Sound area on the way to Mt. Rainier. She is a decent fencer; owns a historical, fantasy, and science fiction costume collection that currently takes up over a third of her large closet; and has driven four-in-hand, sailed on a tall ship, and dressed as a Regency dandy, all in the name of research, of course.
